I have known for a while that painting gives me peace of mind
and the key to being happy and healthy is not worrying too much.
I’ve even volunteered at an art therapy workshop before.
For the members, expressing themselves through art – and giving their minds a chance to be clear and focused for a while – all contributes to their healing.
I’m just the same.
A while ago I set myself a challenge of doing ten paintings throughout 2012.
So far I have done three. I mean, I have also got myself a degree,
but it took a lot out of me.
Painting is the one thing I don’t worry about, simply because it has never let me down, and never ceased to make me feel good about myself.
First hurdle: 7 more paintings in 4 months. Sounds doable?
With the biggest hurdle, I’ve found that often the trick is trying not to try too hard.
Painting helps me with that.
